ePouta is designed for processing sensitive data. It allows you to deploy virtual machines and storage resources directly to your organisation’s internal network, not to the internet.

In ePouta security is taken to a whole new level. It is ideal for organizations that require high performance, high security and certified environment for sensitive data handling. ePouta is a generic platform that can be used for a variety of things.

You can use the ePouta web interface through a web browser and through a set of APIs which allow programmatic management of resources. In order to access and use the service the users must have a CSC user account.

ePouta is based on the open source cloud software called OpenStack. Your data in ePouta is stored in Finland.

ePouta needs to be set up with your home organisation (Private Cloud Service).

ePouta provides:

  • High performance computing with superior flexibility and user experience via Infrastructure as a Service
  • You can deploy resources such as virtual machines, storage and networks, and have full control over them
  • Variety of resources: e.g. virtual machines, block devices, virtual networks, high performance computing and GPUs

If you don’t need sensitive data processing, look into cPouta or Rahti.
